The arrival of Brad Friedel to the Tottenham squad has been highly anticipated. Not only for Friedel’s obvious skill as a goalkeeper, but for the fact that he’s 40 years old, which raised a lot of eyebrows when the announcement was made. Friedel lived up to expectations, stopping over 10 shots on goal before giving up three goals and the eventual loss to the Red Devils of Manchester United.┬áThe match marked the 276th consecutive appearance for Friedel.

For Man U, Danny Welbeck, Anderson and Wayne Rooney all put in a goal in the second half of the match in front of the crowd at Old Trafford.

In MLS Action, David Beckham and the LA Galaxy defeated the San Jose Earthquakes 2-0 in Los Angeles to further separate themselves from the rest of the Western Conference with a total of 51 points on the season with only four regular season matches remaining.
